July 4th Party Favors

July 4th party favors are the perfect way to thank your guests for attending your July 4th celebration. A common misconception about party favors is that they should be handed out at the end of the party. This couldn't be further from the truth! Give your guests July 4th party favors that they can enjoy during the party.

Here are a few ideas for July 4th party favors that guests can use to celebrate the Fourth throughout the party:

  • Bag of Treats: Create a party bag for guests filled with Fourth of July party treats. Include items such as party poppers, pinwheels and American flags. Place the items in red, white and blue bags. Hand the party bags out at the beginning of the party, rather than the end so that guests can enjoy the favors throughout the day and evening. Place the bags at each table setting to be sure everyone receives a bag.
  • Themed Attire: Upon their arrival at the July 4th party, present guests with red, white and blue items they can wear during the party. Fun 4th of July favors guests can wear include Uncle Sam hats, patriotic leis, tiaras and red, white and blue feathered boas. If everyone is wearing something patriotic, guests who are more shy will feel more comfortable donning the favors. Make guests aware that they should take the accessories home as their Fourth of July party favors.
  • Favors for Kids: There are a variety of fun and exciting 4th of July party favors that are appropriate for kids. Consider handing out Fourth of July themed bubbles during the party. Other great ideas include star clappers, paddle boards, sunglasses and yo-yos. Make all of the favors available to the kids during the party so they will have activities to keep them busy throughout the celebration!
  • Take-Home-Treat: For a Fourth of July take-home-treat, bake sugar cookies or cupcakes for guests and decorate them with red, white and blue frosting. Another option is to contact your local bakery and order delicious baked goods. Put the cookies in cellophane bags and the cupcakes in small boxes. Tie red, white and blue ribbon around the cupcake boxes! Guests will be delighted that they can enjoy a piece of the party even after it comes to a close!

Other ideas for July 4th party favors are personalized cup holders to keep your drinks cold, custom candy tins with red, white and blue candies, and boxes of sparklers for your guests to take home.
